We'll be sure to ask the Knoebels about a Gentle Giant height stick this weekend when we see them.

And be sure to stay tuned later today for our update on Impulse going Vertical.

This would be so awesome! :woohoo: Thank you soooo much! Please ask them to keep it between us if they think it's a good idea. I'd like it to be a surprise for him. ;)

:lol:
The first piece of steel for Impulse was installed today, and ALT was there to cover the big occasion!

Take a look at the video of the first pieces being installed, as well as a discussion with Brian Knoebel:
If you're having issues with the video, click here.

Moving on to the pictures from this morning:

The first piece being lifted up!

The first support column for Impulse going into the footer!


More than just one support was installed today...over 5 were!

These pieces are all for the base of the drop.

The next update we post will feature track! Keep tuned!
Thanks for reading and watching!

Let's hope they checked the weldments on the columns before installing them, since Stakotra messed them up on Wicked.

I would suspect after that type of mistake, they wouldn't make it a second time.

Steel supports and track for Impulse continue to rise at Knoebels! The cobra roll is being installed now among many other elements.

Watch the full video, which starts with footage from last week and then transitions into footage from this week. Crews are moving quickly to get the steel up!

If you're having issues, click here.


Impulse is getting higher!


The cobra roll is being worked on, the helix was completed, and the brake run was also installed.


Seeing all this steel driving towards Knoebels is going to make a brand new "sense of arrival". I'm surprised how large it is!


The brake run for Impulse.

Keep tuned for our next Impulse update!

Thanks for reading and watching.

BrandonStrouphauer replied the topic: Impulse Construction Update #9 - Much More Steel!
Construction crews at Knoebels are flying on the construction of Impulse!! Lots of new steel has been erected, including the loop, inline twist, and beginning of the lift hill!

Watch the video with many clips of both the newly installed track as well as supports being lifted with the crane:

If you're having issues, click here.

Now, onto the pictures!

Crews hard at work!


The lift hill has been started! Interesting tidbit.. Crews are able to put one support up every 5 minutes. Crazy!


The crest of the coaster, and what will eventually be the highest point!


Impulse's cobra roll was finished and the loop & incline twist were built.


Work on the lift hill!


Knoebels opens in less than two months, on April 25th! No word whether Impulse is going to be open or not for opening day, but we will keep you posted on construction, testing, and the eventual opening! I'm ready for some laps on Twister and Flying Turns in less than two months!

Thanks for watching and reading!

Some pictures of my own from 2-25-15. More photos can be found on either my Scenic Photos FB page or the Knoebels Fan Page. It's looking beautiful from down here.
